Sample text

For this later age foreword 31 the ‘Book’ was more like a folio volume, its indices compendious and various, and its author, God, more a Baroque concettist than a simple preacher. Nor was there only a single book in this library exclusively concerned with Christian devotion. One image (illus. 7) from Otto Vænius’s Emblemata horatiana shows that the humanist revival of Classical learning provided a repertory of Classical moral virtues that could exist alongside the Christian message. Hardly a polished mirror, which reflected exclusively Christian, spiritual truths, it was a dark glass, a cipher, a labyrinth of significance.

We might also go further and make the not unfair assumption that, even in his own lifetime, he regarded the subsequent public appearances of his poetic offspring with some bemusement. At various times he seems to have allowed, if not actively approved, different visual interpretations of his epigrams. It was probably a matter of indifference to him, as long as the artists’ interpretations did not render his text totally ridiculous. After all, the humorous, the preposterous, the exotic and the strange were not altogether removed from his original sense of festive emblematics.

There could be few surprises in a world in which each stage of life had its expectations penned and delimited by churchmen, jurists, moralists and teachers. It must have all been very comforting – and severely controlling. 6 Life was essentially emblematic because, to some degree, many aspects of daily experience were self-consciously presented as part of an emblematic theatre, in which no event could be presented without an accompanying gloss. For this reason human history, legend and myth needed to be taught and remembered, because these fictions and constructions of the past repeated themselves in essence, and could, in turn, throw light on present events and 30 the emblem happenings.
